On 30 September 2021, members of OSA-A began the day with Battalion PT led by SSG Schacher. The early morning circuit training was followed by a Newcomer’s Brief where the most recent arrivals were given an orientation to OSA-A. Later in the day, the Battalion gathered at Walsh Hangar for an awards ceremony followed by a Hail and Farewell. LTC Messare presented an array of awards to both Military and Civilian members of OSA-A for their exemplary contributions over the past few months. Section leaders welcomed four new members to the ranks and the team said farewell to MAJ Witt, the former OSA-A XO. LTC Messare presented an OSA-A plaque to the former XO for his dedication over the past twelve months.

Just a public service announcement.
This entire command has done a tremendous job keeping safe, minimizing exposure, and remaining operational even prior to the availability of a vaccine. Now that the vaccine is readily available and it’s FDA approved encourage those around you who were holding out to get the vaccine.

A new study from CDC’s COVID-NET shows that unvaccinated people are 17x more likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 than people who are fully vaccinated. Get vaccinated to protect yourself.
